[River in Winter - 10] : Impressions 19 ~ 23

Posted by Dave Bull at 8:31 PM, February 12, 2008

Continued from [River in Winter - 9] | Starting point of the thread is [River in Winter - 1]

Step #19 - Again re-using one of the earlier blocks, a thin layer of blue helps push the stones under the water ...

That impression by itself (on scrap paper ...) :

Step #20 - This one is just for fun ... a small 'touch' on the stones ...

That impression by itself (on scrap paper ...) :

Step #21 - A bit of rough carving, to give more texture to the underwater stones:

That impression by itself (on scrap paper ...) :

Step #22 - And a bit more water over the top of them ...

That impression by itself (on scrap paper ...) :

Step #23 - And here we are - a re-do of the base tone block for the stones, to darken them a bit ...

That impression by itself (on scrap paper ...) :

Now that we've come all the way, I've put up the slideshow version of this process ...

Is this the only print that could be made from this set of blocks? Not at all ... this one has pretty much infinite variations possible. It would be fun to play with them and see what else could be done, but such experiments will have to wait for 'another day' ...

Ah, at last! I was already starting to wonder about the continuation of the printing of your River in Winter print...

Wonderful stuff, and some of these impressions are SO subtle!

Received the "River in Winter" book and print today. Another excellent effort. This is turning out to be, IMHO, a great series. Thanks, Dave!
